According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, a cat is considered geriatric by age 7 or 8. As cats age, they tend to require increased attention, possible changes in diet and in some cases alterations to their home environment. Keeping pets mobile through appropriate exercise helps keep them healthier and more mobile. A cat that was once an outdoor cat, may want to spend more time indoors as she ages. A cat tree or cat condo can be a great alternative to outdoor play spaces.
Senior cats enjoy sleeping, relaxing and hiding. They especially like to be perched in high places in order to have elevated perspective over their environment. A high quality cat tree, can provide your furry friend with a variety of sleeping and hiding options. The posts of a cat tree are also designed as a great place for your senior pet to scratch their claws, exercise and play.
